Sultan, who is the oldest son of the current president of UAE, and who is in charge of the investments and banking, is a member of the family Al Nahaja which rues with Abu Dhabi, the richest of 7 emirates in Saudi Arabia, for about 250 years.
According to the official Forbes list, his father Kalifa bin Zajed al Nahajan is third richest man, and his wealth is estimated at 20 billions of dollars.

Marovic spoke with him for an hour, telling him about all the potentials which Budva Riviera has, as well as the possibilities of investment. The meeting was kind of a protocol, and as Vijesti have found out a working meeting will be organized today on Sultan’s yacht which sailed in yesterday (18.08) in Budva marina.
As we found out Sultan’s closest associate M.A. Ahmend bin Ali al Dahri, who is at the head of their family bank will attend the meeting.

Royal family is well-known by the investments in hotel industry, and as we found out locations of Jaz, Buljarica, and Lucice will be offered to them. The possibility of spreading their bank funds on Budva, which they ding very interesting, is also in effect. Family Al Nahajan has just turned Dubai into a main tourist trading center of Far East.

Sultan’s father Kalifa, is the second president of UAE, and he inherited his father Zaid who ruled for four decades. Zaid has managed to unite 7 emirates after which he was named the first president. After 38 years of ruling, and after his death he was inherited by his oldest son of 19 sons as many as he had, kalifa who at the moment is the president of UAE.

MOONLIGHT TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY
Luxurious yacht Moonlight has thrilled yesterday all passer’s- by who stopped in order to see this sea beauty. It was built in 1984 in renowned Italian shipbuilding yard Beneta. In 2001 it was laced on 100th place of Top 100 biggest yachts in the world. It is 58,5 meters king, and before it came into hands of Arabian rulers it was named Mau Mau V when it was considered to be the pride of Italian corporation Agusta, and Blue Naval. At that time it was possible to rent it for just 126.000 dollars per week, and at the transition between two millenniums it was offered for sale for just 9, 2 millions of dollars. However long and massive reconstruction in UAE with the change of the name has increased not only its size for 4 meters, but it has also increased its market value. In its new look it had its debut in Mediterranean waters in the middle of August in 2006 in Cannes. What is specific for this yacht is an unusual stern mast.
